Be the first to post for 'Using The Selection Tools'!



These are the fire spells I made back in the lecture about “Using The Paintbrush & Airbrush” where we were to make fire icons.
This time however they have yet to be acquired!

Here we go:
I followed along with the sword one cause I didn’t quite understand the challenge and then I made 3 of my own using images from before.

Definitely could’ve done a better job with the background :o


Here my work on this session :slight_smile:



Here’s something I did. I’m pretty surprised by Gimp’s pattern fill, it actually gives nice effects when dealing with low pixel count. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:



Bow silhouette The shape of a bow is pretty tough imo.
Potion silhouette
Fist silhouette
Hammer silhouette

I’ve seen some very nice ones posted here for sure!

Not sure how i feel about these, but it was good practice none the less.
All i did was basically add grey over my icons with the transparency turned to 85% while adding highlights and shadow. I’m sure the more i mess around with these, the easier it will be to decide on a style i would like to use.

Nice seeing what everyone else came up with, thanks for sharing guys!


Really enjoying the course so far. Great job Mike!
Here are my icons, needs more polishing, but quite happy with them.
